A hazy golden IPA with a thick creamy egg white head. Aroma is pungeant and pleasant, pinhey, and hoppy, with definite maltiness, all caramelly.In mouth, a biscuiity malt is well complemented by nice floral hops, restrained but sustained, and light grapefruit. An ideal IPA. Bought at CJs in Potsdam.

I can remember a time when I didnít like IPAs. Oh, that was many moons ago! Iíve finally come around. This brew is damn tasty. Definitely worth a try. Deep orange hue with a nice head. Good taste, nice alcohol content - what more could you want? Plus, the artwork is pretty trippy...man. It is fun to admire and those who see you holding it are likely to remark, "Whoa, cool artwork on that one!"

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Golden colour with a thick, sticky, white head. Very fresh hoppy nose, grapefruit, light papaya and other tropical fruit. Flavour is well-balanced. Moderate bitterness, but loads of hoppy flavour, pale malt sweetness that lets the hops shine. Tropical fruit in the hops. Great balance. Clean malts and a tasty hop bill. Nothing to complain about here.
